A Campus for the Next 100 Years
As Columbia Business School celebrates its past and looks toward its next chapter, business practices are changing rapidly. To continue training future generations of leaders to succeed in an increasingly team-oriented, tech-savvy, global environment, the School needs facilities that reflect the reality of the marketplace.
Columbia Business School’s new LEED-certified facilities in Manhattanville — designed by renowned New York architecture firm Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with FXFowle — will facilitate and encourage development of social intelligence–based skills, such as leadership, management, teamwork, and negotiation, creation and strengthening of social networks among students, faculty members, alumni, and business practitioners, and integration of cutting-edge technology into teaching and research.
The construction of state-of-the-art facilities offers Columbia Business School a unique opportunity to create spaces that foster a deep sense of community — where students, faculty members, alumni, and our partners can gather and exchange ideas. Our new home will unlock the School’s full potential, inspiring an ongoing transformation of our programs and the growth of our intellectual capital. In addition to offering much more space than Uris and Warren Halls, the new buildings will be designed to facilitate collaboration; more open office spaces; flexible classroom space with the latest technology; cafés and dining facilities; and an alumni welcome center.
Columbia University commenced construction on the Manhattanville site in September 2008, and work has been ongoing since then.
